Part 310s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1830 James Smith & Jeanne Boyle Again

05 July 2010

Morning,

The skies cleared up in Tampa Bay a wee bit last night for the candle-rockets, sparklers, and sonic booms. The quadrupeds did not enjoy their evening walks.

Did you know that today, July 5th is the Independence Day in Algeria? The year it happened was 1962. Independence was from France. Believe it or not, Algeria had been taken by the French in 1830. At about that point in time there were some Brunhammers who did migrate from Alsace to Algeria. Coincidentally 1830 seems to be the same year that I have been of late focused on in my Indenture Research Project in the search for the genealogy of my ggg-grandfather James Smith.

And in the US, some people may be somewhat a bit confused this July 5th. This year July 5th is considered the National Holiday as July 4th fell on a Sunday. The confusion is – July 5th in the US is also known as Workaholics Day. What’s a body to do?

This next Record from the Grenada Registers of Records as I mentioned in my previous Posting, Part 309s may have been between ggg-grandfather James Smith and one Jeanne Boyle. This Record is a further elaboration of the details of the previous part and was made 2 November 1830.

There does not appear to be any mention or intimation of the ancestral origins of ggg-grandfather James. There is one curious notation about a “Key of the Gate”. On Page 200 of the Indenture the wording indicates “the approbation and consent of the said James Smith who also reserves to himself the Key of the Gate of the said entrance or passage…” I wonder what that was about.

Here are the images of Pages 199 through and including 202 from Item 5 of the microfilm FHL [1563380].
